This nice chart is centered roughly on Iceland and covers from the eastern shores of Canada through Greenland to Scandinavia and Britain. The coastlines are intricately drawn with coastal place names the only detail. A fine chart with decorative title cartouche and rhumb lines.
Issued folding and now flattened on watermarked paper with a few tiny fold separations and abrasions repaired with archival material.
